Re: Final Installment of World War I Symposium November 2018

Industrial/economic mobilization may have proceeded under "voluntary" means (kind of like FDR's National Recovery Administration relied on the voluntary cartelization of industry), but as noted, the main thing the US contributes to the war is bodies in uniform. This obviously relied on the draft. As Jeanette Keith has shown, this was resisted in many cases, sometimes violently. In many of those cases uniforms were definitely present in the rural Southern countryside. The Espionage Act of 1917 and the Sedition Act of 1918 also criminalized dissent.

Re: Final Installment of World War I Symposium November 2018

Apologies for this one being so late, I've been busy lately at the command and general staff college administering oral comprehensive boards to every one of our 1158 (or so) students. Each board required three faculty members (teaching faculty) and took about 90 minutes.

John,

What do you do in your spare time?
